Prior to joining the University of Nottingham as a lecturer in Dynamics and Control (June 2013) Dimitrios conducted research in Structural Dynamics and Vibroacoustics within EADS Astrium (currently Airbus Defense and Space) at Les Mureaux, France (2009-'12). The research was funded by the EU FP7 project coded MID-FREQUENCY and resulted in the attribution of a PhD from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon. He also holds a MSc with Distinction in Automotive Systems Engineering by Loughborough University (2008-'09) and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (2003-'08).
Dimitrios is a part of the Composites Research Group.
MM1DMS Dynamics of Mechanical Systems
My current research interests focus on:
-Prediction of the dynamic and acoustic performance of aerospace composites.
-Design optimisation of composite multifunctional structures.
-Structural health monitoring of aerospace composites.
-Design of adaptive composites and metamaterials having exceptional damping and structural controllability properties.
Keywords: Structural dynamics, Composite structures, Wave propagation, Damping, Smart adaptive composites, Acoustic response and transmission, Design optimization
Students with a first or a 2:1 degree in mechanical engineering or a relevant discipline and a solid background in dynamics and/or composites are welcome for discussing on funded PhD opportunities.
